********************

2013 was a very good year for creativity and artistic exploration: I created a series of video art pieces, that I feel stretched the potential of my imagination. That exploration also enabled me to learn a variety of technical skills in editing within the creative aspect of visual and musical composition. Check out my “Experiment: Data Complex” series. Most notably, my latter sub-series “The World” (4 videos). But I digress, the purpose of this post is to introduce my latest published book entitled:

N E W D I G I T A L S C A P E S | V A R I A T I O N S

In 2013, my photographic and digital artwork could overall, be found, in the “Variations” series. A remix of imagery that explored ambiguity, memories, dreams, and emotional constructs. The book is a total of 140 pages and features over 100 images in a large portrait format. The link above will forward you to my bookstore @ Blurb publishing. There you will be able to access a 37 page preview.

And last but not least, I would like to thank all my fellow bloggers, whose support in 2013 has been a great inspiration.

variations | into abstraction: a thoughtful moment on the horizon

It came to me
like a flash
[white

light]
ascending;
> i was,
… bound
with this thoughtful moment
of self reflection
and disappearance …
just beyond
the distant horizon


variations | into abstraction (a mirrored dream remix)

Seconds after awakening,
a mirrored moment
> my life
here and then

As we move through life, we think of friends and loved ones. Sometimes they visit us in our dreams. And seconds after awakening, we hold onto their presence … Last night I was in my grandmother’s home; Mrs. Aline Pearl Thorne, our beautiful, loving, family matriarch. Even now the dream slips from my consciousness, but the sound of her voice, and my joy in finding and embracing the familiar dinner dish she has prepared still lingers. I thought of a distant cousin, who had one time shared in this experience of family love. Distant we may be, but I can feel that across the continuum that is space and time, we share the same mirrored dream.

variations | the beautiful things we see


variations | the view across the lake (a picture never completes the thought remix)

Sometimes, no matter the view, the picture never completes the thought.
